Prince George’s County Hospital Negligence Lawyer | Serving Clients in MD, VA, & D.C.

People from all walks of life go to hospitals to receive treatment for various injuries, illnesses, and diseases. Hospitals handle virtually all medical procedures, and though we’d like to think they are always looking out for our best interests, this is not always the case. If you were injured in a hospital because of an act of malpractice, you can count on a Prince George’s County medical malpractice lawyer right here at our firm to fight for you.

Examples of Hospital Malpractice

Unfortunately, there are very many ways in which a medical professional can commit an act of malpractice. Some of the most common types of hospital negligence/malpractice that our firm sees are as follows:

  • Birth injuries
  • Ignoring doctor’s orders
  • Misreading charts or lab results
  • Failing to order the appropriate tests
  • Failing to refer a patient to a specialist when necessary
  • Surgical errors, such as wrong-site surgery
  • Anesthesia errors, such as using too much or too little
  • Medication errors, such as giving a patient the wrong medication or the wrong dose of medication
  • Infections
  • Failure to diagnose/delayed diagnosis/misdiagnosis

Bringing Your Claim

If you are looking to bring a medical malpractice claim against the medical professional who harmed you while you were in the hospital, you should first retain the services of an experienced Prince George’s County hospital negligence lawyer who can work to gather and present all evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your medical malpractice claim. If we are successful, you may receive financial compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages deal with the financial cost of an injury, while non-economic damages compensate a person for emotional trauma, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and other non-monetary damages.

Statute of Limitations

In Maryland, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims is three years from the date you discovered your injury, or five years from the date your injury occurred, whichever comes first. Waiting past the statute of limitations will most likely permanently time-bar you from suing. Our legal team is prepared to assist you today.
